Question mtr price question

I am going to buy a new set of Wrangler Mtr's 35x12.5015 and i need rims also. I called around and the best price i could get was a buddy price of 995.oo dollars for A set of 4 tires and four black rockcrawles 2.5 b/s toy lug pattern. This includeds mount and balance and shipping and tax. I have talked to some people and they say "thats a buddy price?" SO i was just wondering what yall thinkis a far price for that set up thanks

Going price on 35s is 155 X 4 = 620

$50 wheels X 4 = $200

So that's $820 total so far. M&B is aroungg 40-ish, and that leaves the rest for shipping. That's a good normal price... not a BUDDY price, IMHO.

Thumbs up yeah

TNTOY thats what i thought also thats exactly why i posted this question and becasue maybe somebody in nor cal or close has a set they may want to sel 35's or 37's. Thanks.

I hate thinking i am getting a deal and then somebody says they could have gotten them for cheaper the day after i buy them. Oh well

The Tire Rack is probably the largest wholesale seller of tires in the country. They had ads in all the car mags. You will have no problem with them.

That said, I have heard that you can take their price to Sears or whatever and get them to match it. FWIW.

1 more tirerack happy customer....

i order 5 35" MTRs from tire rack about 3 weeks ago, they misshipped one (sent a 315/75R16) but immediatly sent a replacement and a call tag, no questions asked.. They even call me at work to verify when i selected my zuke as the intended application.

As far as installing them i used my $35 harbor freight manual tire machine and it took 5min each to install on my rims... I dont balance mine...

I went into a Big O tire store with a quote (on Kumho MTs 33x12.5r15 for $96) from Tirerack.com. They said that they normally have a pricematching policy but it doesn't apply to Tirerack because they are wholesale. They wanted $50 per tire more..... I walked out laughing...

Thumbs up yeah i am getting 37 mtrs

Yeah i learned today after calling every shop in town that tirerack is a wholesale and that tire shops get them from there at that price so they can not match or even come close to it. THanks for the link. 175 a tire is a steal I know where to get them know. so i f anyone has a set a black steel rims for a toy they want to sell let me know

Call Gary at GW tire at 609-758-0077and tell him Zach from Iron in the Pines sent you. Our club has a deal with the guy and he may be able to drop ship to you for a decent price. He was the cheapest for me when I just bought Swampers, but I didn't have to ship.
Worth a shot.
